The Parkdale Film + Video Showcase 2016 program ‘Close to Home’ was held on Friday September 16, 2016 at Gallery 1313. The showcase included a live performance by sound artist Colin Gillespie, followed by our 60 minute screening of works selected from the open call. The program was curated by the Parkdale Film + Video Showcase programming committee.
All the artists in the program are living or working in Parkdale or are Toronto community members making work about issues relevant to the neighborhood. This includes ideas around community cultures, gentrification, affordable housing, community resources, health and wealth disparities, immigration, settlement and feelings of home.
